|This page describes the installation and use of Sparx Enterprise Architect for OOI CI.
Sparx Enterprise Architect (Ultimate Edition) is the architecture and design tool for the OOI CI and the entire OOI program. It is used for official OOI configuration controlled specification drawings, for interface relevant use cases and for other UML diagramming purposes.
We are using EA version 8.X, which is backwards compatible with the previously used 7.5.X. We are also using the DoDAF extensions and profile.
There are multiple floating licenses available. The client requires MS Windows.
Examples are provided.
Get a recent copy of an EAP file for an architecture model as described in EA Installation and connect it to a SVN (subversion) version control server location.
In order to edit the model, lock a part of the model (Package Control > Check Out...) and make your edits. Finish quickly and merge changes back to the server (Package Control > Check In...)
We apply these conventions for OOI CI models:
It is possible to encounter errors. Some hints to deal with errors are listed here:
HTML Documentation is created for OOI CI milestones and architecture baselines, as well as for intermediate versions during design phases. OOI CI Architecture exports can be found here: OOI CI Architecture Export
EA supports linking to the unique identifiers of diagrams and model elements.
